Hi-

Just wanted to thank everyone for the help. The combination below that Ken suggests seems to do the trick. I do get an error that both "linefeed-treatment" and "white-space-treatment" are not implemented yet but I guess "white-space-collapse" must be enough to make it work using FOP.

I am really rolling now but am sure I will have more questions soon...

Thanks!
Cindy Hunt

I use the combination:

    linefeed-treatment="preserve"
    white-space-collapse="false"
    white-space-treatment="preserve"

This is illustrated on page 29 of our free download preview of our XSL-FO book.

You'll have to check their feature lists to determine what is and is not 
supported ... I don't know if these are available to you.

I hope this helps.
